What does it mean to work in accounting and payroll? What are the typical tasks you'll complete working for a small to mid-size company, corporate department, or government division? And most importantly, what's demand like right now for accounting and payroll graduates in the Ottawa area?
In Canadian society, we place a very special trust in community services workers (CSWs) to protect and advocate for vulnerable individuals. We rely on CSWs to help make our neighborhoods more fair, safe, and productive.
But given how complex their work can be, there are times when CSWs are faced with very challenging situations, conflicts, and decisions—where the outcome will have a serious and lasting impact on the life of a client, family members, or the CSW herself.
To help build ethical decision-making skills, and understand their responsibilities to the public, CSW students learn the code of professional ethics and values set out by the Canadian Association of Social Workers (CASW).

A group of personal support worker students at the Herzing College Ottawa campus
Personal support workers (PSWs) work one-to-one with patients of all ages and walks of life. They play a truly crucial role in their everyday health and wellbeing, helping patients remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.
PSWs work primarily with elderly patients, but may also provide healthcare services to chronically or terminally ill individuals of varying ages. They are an essential link between patients and families and supervising clinicians (such as nurses or doctors).
For a recent college graduate, there are few things more exciting than nailing an interview and being offered a job.
But making the transition from student to successful professional can be incredibly nerve-wracking.
How do you actually keep that job, and begin moving upward into positions with more responsibility and reward?
